To ensure the longevity of anything, it is important to keep it clean and free of toxic materials. Many times people find that their favorite RC car cannot function after an exciting outdoor drive, even though it was bought recently. One of the main causes of this, other than defects in the model, is the entrance of dirt or unclean substances inside the car’s system. The more you play with your car, the more it is exposed to dirt and unwanted particles. Therefore, it is necessary to give your cars a deep cleaning to have exciting times with them for a long time
If you want to lengthen the lifetime of your favorite RC car, then this article will be super helpful to you. Here, we have described elaborately how to clean your RC car along with the supplies you will need to conduct the process. So without beating around the bush, let us hop right into it:
- All-purpose cleaner
- Clean cloth
- Paper towel (instead of clean cloth if you prefer).
Steps to Follow:
Step 01: Remove the Battery and Other Spare Parts:
First, make sure that you have removed the car’s battery. It is important to remove any spare parts along with the battery for cleaning the car properly. Then, wipe the battery with a dry and clean cloth if needed. Clean the spare parts along with the car and the battery.
Step 02: Clean the Surface and Corners:
Now, using the air compressor and brush, make sure to remove any loose dirt from the surface and corners of the car. The compressor will help you to make the car free from all the dirt hiding in the corner. You should use the brush to clean the fine and detailed parts of your RC car.
Step 03: Clean the Tires:
Using the brush and liquid soap, clean the tires properly to give your car a new look.
Step 04: Use an All-Purpose Cleaner:
This step is applicable if your car is waterproof. Using an all-purpose cleaner and a clean dry cloth, you can clean the overall car. Make sure that the liquid does not get inside the car’s system, which can spoil the car’s performance. After putting the cleaner, using a clean dry cloth or paper towel, wipe away the dirt and let the car dry. While buying the cleaner, make sure it is not hazardous and will not damage the car’s materials.
Step 05: Let the Car Dry:
Finally, let it dry with an air compressor if needed, and put the battery inside. Make sure every corner is dry and no liquid, like water or cleaner, is left. The vehicle needs to be free of any such liquid to have a pristine system. Now, assemble other spare parts if needed and you are good to go!
Points to Remember:
- Work under adult supervision if you are underaged.
- Make sure your model is waterproof before choosing liquid-based cleaning.
- Make sure to wear gloves while working with sensitive cleaners.
- Dry the whole car thoroughly before assembling the battery and other parts.
